Andrew Padilla - Laguna Pueblo  

Andrew was born in 1956 and began potting at about age ten. He was first taught in the ways of the Santa Clara potters by Reycita Padilla, his grandmother. Santa Clara styles served as the basis of his art for about the next fifteen years. He began experimenting with the white slip of the Laguna Pueblo, the home of his mother, Gladys Paquin. Gladys coached him and his own style emerged. Andrew makes beautiful pieces of art in a stark, brilliant white. They are polished to a smooth perfection and are unlike anything else being created in Pueblo pottery today. His most recent awards include two second place ribbons at the 2004 Santa Fe Indian Market.
